. >> i'm sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidy to pbs. i like pbs, i love big bird, i actually like you too. >> reporter: one of the most surprising parts of the president's performance was what he did not say. no mention of romney's infamous 47% remark, no talk of bain capital, nothing about romney's own taxes. he did play the "romney is a hypocrite" card when it comes to health care. >> the irony is that we've seen this model work really well. in massachusetts. because governor romney did a good thing, working with democrats in the state to set up what is essentially the identical model and, as a consequence, people are covered there. it hasn't destroyed job. >> reporter: romney, who ran from his massachusetts health care plan during the gop primaries, now used it to tack to the middle for the general election. >> i like the way we did it in massachusetts. i like the fact that in my state, we had republicans and democrats come together and work together. what you did, instead, was to push through a plan without a single republican vote. >> reporter: and romney's countless hours of

the subsidies to pbs. i like pbs and big bird and i like you, too, but i'm not going to keep spending money on things i have to borrow money to pay for it. martha: big bird woke and heard that. users posted 17,000 big bird tweets a minute. one such account @firedbigbird. bill: a year ago in a conversation with governor romney he said when i get one-on-one in the president he's going to say x and i'll say y. he will say "a" and i'll say "b." that was a year ago. he has been waiting a year. if you look at these snap polls. oftentimes this is an emotional reaction. whether it's cbs or cnn there was a clear winner in this debates. martha: governor romney had take and lot of heat from conservative watchers of all of this who said he had yet to make a passionate conservative argument throughout the course of this campaign. i think those folks will be satisfied with what they saw last night. he was ago that and connected to what he was saying. he made his points. and he turned that key in a way that may satisfy the bill kristols of the world and the other people who had been negative on him. bill:
is with us. it may be an honor to watch moderate the debates but it's not easy. >> the anchor of pbs has sat in the madder rarts before. but in today's hyperpartisan world where everybody has an opinion facebook mr. lehrer is bound to wake up wake up tomorrow morning finding himself criticized by the left or right or both, our own senior political analyst brit. center of the attention and yet in a sense you don't want to be. you want the candidates to be the superior have to be firm enough and sharp in your questioning enough debate. you have to be careful to not ever cross the line where it looks like you are favoring one candidate over another. i think it's exceedingly challenging. >> challenging indeed. hard to find examples of anybody who has been offered the moderator job, shep and turned it down. >> shepard: you name a topic, can i tell you a complaint. in this we have heard complaints about a lack of diversity among the moderators. >> it's interesting. when you look at the three presidential debate moderators this year. candy crowley of cnn is only the second woman to moderate a debat
except for pbs. the only other thing he mentioned was obama care, which adds $109 billion to the deficit. east cuts less than 0.1 of 1%. >> i don't want to be a bad moderator. let me get you in and move on to anne. go ahead. >> i want to thank keith for admitting his side believes in redistribution of wealth. we believe in cutting government spending. >> mitt romney doesn't believe that. your own candidate has taken both sides, and last night was not the mitt romney who campaigned for four months to win the republican primary. you know that as well as i do, and you steve, have been so honest in critiquing him should be more honest about his dishonesty last night. >> let me bring in anne on that. anne, back to the president and this incumbent curse. he didn't bring up the 47% and talk about bain capital outsourcing jobs, tax returns and offshore accounts. do you believe his campaign gave him that advice? why not use those weapons, and you don't compromise your likability when you were telling what you believe is the truth. >> well, i think you just put your finger why they didn't do it in

didn't realize that. >> romney talked last night about cutting funding to pbs, the home of sesame street. and big bird was not happy. did you see what big bird did to romney's car right after the debate? show what happened. look at that. that's unbelievable. that is unbelievable. he is not happy. he is not happy. >> of course obama and romney differed on many subjects throughout the debate. there was one moment where they really came together in perfect harmony. check it out.

are heading off to denver to co-anchor this presidential debate that will be moderated by pbs' jim letterer. is there any chance we get a question on this give up this is the big news the past couple weeks? >> reporter: no. i think the restrictions on jim lehrer are pretty tight. unless a candidate brits up i think it moderator has a responsibility according to what they signed on to to get it back on track to the topic that they were supposed to stay on. so it will be interesting to see if that happens. but it won't be generated by jim hehrer. megyn: unless he goes rogue. >> reporter: if he goes rogue then we have an interesting story. megyn: when you think jim helrer you think -- now don't. see you at 6:00 p.m. on "special report." we got a fox news poll of what likely voters are thinking about the president's handling of libya. more voters, 43% say they disaproper of the president's handling of the attack. in just a short while we'll be joined by andy card, the former chief of staff for president bush. we'll ask him how he thinks the media would be covering it if it were his boss in the

minutes and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connection that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we

claim the moderator, jim lehrer are of pbs was basically too right-wing and acting in concert with the romney campaign somehow, which is denial to a level that is truly amusing. bill: if that is the one observation you have i'mcuriousu observe this. this is al gore talking about the altitude in colorado, specifically the city of denver. roll this. >> obama arrived in denver at 2:00 p.m. today, just a few hours before the debate started. romney did his debate prep in denver. when you go to 5,000 feet -- >> exactly. >> and you only have a few hours to adjust. >> that is interesting. >> i don't know, maybe --. bill: did you hear that voice in the background, that's interesting? now, it is true, and it is factual he left vegas around 2:00 in the afternoon. but just on the face, what do you think of that? >> well that may be its effect on vice president gore. i think the president is in peek physical condition. i think he could probably handle 5,000 feet. this is why the president had a problem in the macro explanation, is, people like al gore, suck up to the president. every presi
